Term 2 nzl

this term we are learning to express our self through art.

We have been looking at different pieces of new Zealand made art, we have been noticing different aspects of these artworks and trying to figure out what they mean.

term 1 nzl

Last term in Nzl we were learning about identity.

one of the activity s we did was understanding kiwiana what we had to do was read clues relating to a object or animal and we had to match the clue to the object or animal.
I really enjoyed this because I learnt a lot about new Zealand that i hadn't previously known.

Term 1 Greyhigh

This term in English we have been working really hard on the hero cycle. we have been writing a bout our heroes and why they are famous and how they came to fame.

This is the paragraph that I wrote about him
Burt Munro was a motorcycle racer famous for setting an under 1000cc

record with his Indian Scout in Bonneville Salt Flats at 26th of August 1967.
This record still stands today and it has been for 51 years. He is my hero because he has shown me that
you can achieve a lot when you put your mind to it . you can visit his memorials at the museum in
one of them is at a place called Ehayes on Dee street
. another place you can find an exhibit about Burt is at the Invercargill museum not to far from Ehayes.
Last year I visited these two places and I thought they were really cool
because there was loads of information including his official certificate for the
time he set the record at Ehayes.
At the Museum they had his actual bike that he use to break the record
of cores it didn't look as cool as it use to because the bike was missing the iconic
goldfish shaped shell to increase the bikes aerodynamics. But overall I thought it was
a cool experience.

Summer learning challenge day 1 week 1

Three facts i found interesting about Maui

1. I found it interesting that Maui fished up the north island and his waka became the south island.

2. I find it interesting how cunning and mischievous Maui was when he hid away on the boat and used his own blood instead of bait.

3. Karakia are Maori incantations and prayers, used to invoke spiritual guidance and protection. Karakia are generally used to increase the spiritual goodwill of a gathering, so as to increase the likelihood of a favorable outcome. Maui used a karakia to summon a big fish and also strengthen his line and man did he catch a big fish.

curious new zealanders

We are apart of an experiment to see just how connected new Zealanders are.
We have to write a letter to an New Zealander of our choice.then we have to pass the letter on to a random person with the instruction to pass it on to someone who might know the person whom the letter is addressed.

Image result for rhys darbyI have chosen Rhys Darby as my curious new Zealander because 
he is easily my favorite NZ comedian/ actor and i look up to him as my idol. I am going to first give my letter to Mr Wood because Mr wood could give is to Jake miller and Jake miller would be able to get it to him or at least know someone who can get it to him.
